After talking to Dexcom, this is the only time I wished I wasn't in warranty. The cost of a new receiver is $199 for anyone who was wondering. My transmitter's still in and I feel silly for hoping to find the receiver laying around somewhere.

Sad. Would it cost less if out of warranty? Hope you find it.

if it was out of warranty, the option would be to get a new one, and the cost would be based on what insurance they have.

Luckily, I have pretty awesome insurance so it would cost less. Never thought I would want to be out of warranty...

Oh no! I sure hope it turns up! Please keep us posted...

Sorry to read this. I hope you find it soon. I find the Dex information so valuable that I would pay the replacement fee. Easy for me to say, I know!

When I had the 7+ model, I replaced one each year for three years. That gave me some viable backup units after the first year. Something to think about for the future.
